1L squealer. Pours deep black with a mocha head. Aroma has camp fire notes with chocolate wafer and a slight spice. Big earthy/spicey notes in the flavour with a bitter coffee backing and a slight nutty creaminess. Goodbye Mr Obadiah, the pleasure was certainly all mine. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2013
Deep dark brown body with a tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the nose which is not as noticeable in the taste, smooth, pepper and spice coming through. Drinkable. Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours dark brown with a lasting head.
Nose shows roasted malt, roasted coffee and biscuity rye.
Very similar flavours, but with rich roasty characters throughout. More coffee notes too.
Carbonation seems a bit high, could be lowered a bit. CitrusP (66) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2013
Typical smooth coffee and chocolate aroma. More dark, bitter malt than im used to for a porter but it equates to a very rich and moreish porter. Great mouthfeel, smooth carbonation. ComradeK (1256) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2013
568ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has strong roasty and milk chocolate notes, with a touch of sweet spice. Citrus and spice hops up front lead into smooth milk chocolate, with nutmeg notes coming through. Roasty malt and cocoa make up the mid-palate, leading into a bittersweet finish. This is another good Little Creatures effort; it is quite complex for a porter, and excellent on a cold winter night.

Growler from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. A small beige head with good head retention. Nose shows heavy roast and nutty tones - almost soy like. Touch of vanilla and spice there too. Taste shows peppery spice, heavy nutty notes - hazelnuts, light vanilla and balanced mocha tones. Very sessionable and a good balance o flavour there. Works surprisingly well. Definitely one of Creatures better single batches Jado (804) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2013
From pint bottle. Pours a deep ebony-brown with a lighter highlights at the very edge. Small cream-colored head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, nuts and tobacco. Taste starts out with mild chocolate notes. Roasted malt-coffee bitterness in the mid-palate. Spice at the back end, leading to a lingering spicy finish. Like it. sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2013

Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, taste is exactly the same, the aftertaste lasts and last, a very nice porter, one I would highly recommend
